Body Cameras, Poorly Implemented, Failed

Author: Ben Wood, Published on Apr 23, 2014

A 2013 study found that body cameras led to a massive reduction in use of force incidents and officer complaints. However, a new Justice Department report shows that the benefits of using body cameras are not reaped when they are implemented improperly.

Despite all officers using body cameras, the Albuquerque police still killed 20 people in the past three years.

The Justice Department found that Albuquerque police officers were using deadly force too often and most of the shootings were unconstitutional. The report examines a number of deficiencies in APD that led to its problems, but in this note, we focus on their specific concerns about the use of body cameras.
